Marvel comics will be explored in a whole new medium starting in September. Variety reports that Marvel Entertainment has teamed up with audiobook publisher Dreamscape Media to distribute some of Marvel’s most iconic titles as read-to-me audiobooks this fall. At least two dozen titles are part of the deal, including The Ultimate Spider-Man, The Ultimate X-Men, X-Men: Codename Wolverine, and Daredevil: The Man Without Fear.
“Marvel Entertainment has changed pop culture with its emphasis on character‐driven stories that bring out the superhero in all of us,” said Dreamscape Media publisher Tammy Faxel in a statement released Thursday. “We are proud to collaborate with Marvel Entertainment to give fans a new way to connect with their favorite superheroes.”
The audiobooks will be available for purchase online, in addition to being distributed through the Hoopla, an audiobook lending app that partners with local libraries to make content available to readers and listeners for free. According to Variety, Hoopla previously partnered with Marvel to bring 250 comic books to its app. These new audiobooks will expand that library, in addition to inviting new audiences to engage with Marvel comics through this medium.


  1. I love audio-books very much, I am glad that I once opened this format for receiving information for myself and because of this I even managed to do all the homework assignments at the university on time. I have nothing against ordinary books, but when I read them I immediately want to sleep. So what to say about comics … I don’t even know if I’m going to listen to them, but I’m sure this is a great idea, especially for people with disabilities. By the way, I sometimes write texts myself, like the 1984 story summary, maybe I should also record the audio of these articles?
